As you all know I got cut off my disability benefits this week and it left me in a really tight spot. My brother has a construction business and recently took on a huge project (I won’t elaborate in case there are evil eyes lurking) but he is having to hire people and is really having a hard time keeping on top of his receivables, filing, housework, etc he was joking he needed to hire a wife and I said I was available to help him out. That was about a month ago, I went down and cleaned his house one day and helped with some paperwork but nothing was nailed down. So this morning I called him to say that I had to find a job and not to put pressure on him, but if he wanted to hire me he should do it now because I have to find a job. So starting Monday I am his Executive Assistant. I will be doing whatever he needs doing, books, filing, housework, picking up materials, answering the phone, dropping off the bank deposit, dropping off paychecks, making a dump run. A perfect job for me because I am out and about, not behind a desk all day and meeting people, organizing is a specialty of mine and its for my brother. Not that I want to take advantage of him but like he said, I haven’t worked since my heart attack so if I get tired one day and want to knock off early its not a big deal. If nothing else it will top up my hours so I can qualify for unemployment benefits in the new year. I’ll be making $20/hr and I think it will work out really well, I have managed offices in the past, done delivery driving, and can drive any kind of truck up to a 10 ton so I am versatile.
So that my friends is my big news. whew!!! He has lent me money to get through until pay day and he jokingly said, “Better watch out, you just sold your soul to the devil.”
I replied, “It isn’t the first time I’ve sold my soul to the devil and you don’t scare me, I slept with the devil himself and you got nothing on him!”
